“I learned that we are all capable of so much more than we think we are, until we push ourselves. We all have these reserves that I don’t think we use anymore…Keep looking for those parts of yourself that you have ignored.” Tracy Edwards on Green Connections Radio

Imagine deciding to take on captaining a brand new crew in the world's most dangerous round-the-world boat race with very, very limited experience. That's what then 24-year old Tracy Edwards did. And. She. Won. The two most dangerous legs of the six-leg race. The new documentary,  “Maiden” about it is truly extraordinary, with original footage from the actual race.

Listen to this fascinating and entertaining interview with Tracy about:

  • how she built and captained the first all-female Whitbread race crew - and how they won
  • what her internal voice was like during the journey and how she managed it to lead and thrive.
  • how they turned disadvantages into advantages
  • what we can learn from her transformation from novice to history-making winner
  • lots of great career advice and inspiration!

Read Joan's Forbes blog about it too.

“Open yourself up to the universe and you will always find the right people in the right place at the right time… Look around you and you will see the people you will need to meet.” Tracy Edwards on Green Connections Radio
